How to Make an Insurance Counteroffer for a Car Accident Claim | Colorado Springs Injury Lawyers
Call (800) 863-5312 to Speak with Colorado Springs Accident Lawyers for Free
If you or a loved one has recently been involved in a car accident, you may currently be negotiating with an insurance company. By the time a claims adjuster calls you to let you know what the insurance company thinks the value of your claim is, you may have accumulated a lot of bills.
Before accepting the insurance company’s first offer, it may be a good idea to come up with a counteroffer that you can present to them. Insurance companies do not generate profits by offering their policyholders adequate compensation every time there is an accident, so it is common practice for them to offer you the minimum compensation available.
Most insurance companies rely on the fact that policyholders will accept the first offer they receive, content with the guarantee of some money now rather than the possibility of more money later. If you are wondering how to make a counteroffer for a car accident claim, call Zinda Law Group at (800) 863-5312 for a 100% free case evaluation with our Colorado Springs car accident attorneys.
Calculating the Value of a Personal Injury Claim
You may be finding it difficult to be an impartial evaluator of the damages you or your loved one has suffered because of a car accident. One way to determine the value of your claim is to calculate the value of what it has cost you.
How much have you spent on medical bills and car repair services? What are your lost wages now and in the future due to missed work?
Beyond those economic damages, the value of a car accident claim should also take into account non-economic damages. You or your loved one has likely also suffered emotionally. It can be hard to put a number on this, but pain and suffering after an accident will be an important part of any claim going forward. An experienced car accident attorney may be able to help you determine the total value of your claim.
Making a Counteroffer to an Insurance Company
If you aren’t satisfied with the first offer, you may want to come up with a counteroffer that you view as reasonable, but still will allow you to meet all of your needs. You should have specific reasons for why you are rejecting the insurance company’s first offer. An experienced car accident attorney may be able to negotiate on your behalf.
